Weird sizing

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This was the first Windstopper jacket I ever got. It was a gift from my parents. The jacket is very thin and isn't suitable for winter wear. It would make a decent layering piece if the collar wasn't incredibly uncomfortable. The main issue with this coat is that the sizing is strange. I am 5'11" and 180lbs and wear a large in most items. For this coat, I had to get an extra large and the body fit fine in the shoulders and chest but it barely made my waist. The arms were also too short. I ended up replacing it with a North Face Sentinel that was much better.
